Small but very good museum
Sep 2019
Initially, it was the home of the merchant of the 1st guild Anna Vasilyevna Maraeva, the owner of a textile factory that inherited the family business from her husband. She was a famous philanthropist. During the 1st World War, she organized a hospital in this house. In 1918, the house was nationalized, and in 1919 the headquarters of the Southern Front of the Red Army was located here. According to some stories, I.V. Stalin once lived in this house.
The Maraevs themselves lived in their house until September 1920, when the Serpukhov Museum of Antiquity and Art was opened in the building.
Now it is Serpukhov History and Art Museum. The museum collection includes paintings by Ivana Aivazovskogo, Vasilia Vereshchagina, Ivana Ivanovicha Shishkina, Viktora Vasnetsova. The house has preserved partial decoration.
This is one of the best and largest museums in the suburbs.

Surprisingly good collection of art in nicely restored rooms.
Jul 2014 • Couples
As with many towns in Russia (especially district centers), Serpukhov has its own historical museum. This one doubles as an art museum with a surprising good collection. That stems from the fact that a local notable, and Old Believer from a family who made its fortunes in textiles, built the collection in the 19th century. The non-Russian art isn't notable, but the Russian collection includes many of the masters: Repin, Vaznetsov, Ostroukhov, Levitan, Goncharova and others. The rooms on the first floor (especially) are in excellent shape. The only downside is that the large windows let in so much light that it can occasionally be hard to view the paintings without a glare. But in general, this is an out-of-the-way gem worth visiting.
